I'm sure I'm not the only one who hasn't had their pregnancy sink in fully yet.
I just don't feel pregnant. At. ALL. I mean, sure, I have the sore boobs and such, but the whole there's-a-person-growing-inside-of-me-who-I'll-one-day-gaze-into-their-eyes just seems unreal.
I kept my pregnancy journal from my first and only pregnancy 8 years ago. It's funny I was feeling the same way. I was terrified of miscarriage and I couldn't comprehend the fact that I'd one day have a relationship with that tiny bean in me. And today my son is my moon and stars. He's such a mommas boy and a joy. More than I could have imagined.
With this one I wonder when I'll finally feel pregnant. I missed a period today. I kept waiting to miss a period thinking it'd make this sink in. Nope.
The only thing reminding me that I'm going to have a baby one day is the fact that I wake up and remember that I'm pregnant.
I can't wait for the fun parts of pregnancy. The movement, the gender ultrasound, the growing belly. It makes it all go so much faster!
Yeah, I'm kind of the same way! This is my first pregnancy, so it's still a bit surreal. I can't wait though! But it is kind of uneventful at first, like you mentioned, and I'm not really even having any major symptoms other than twinges and small cramps once in a while and missing my period. Every time I've told someone about being pregnant, there's a little voice in my head that kind of repeats it ....YOU'RE PREGNANT! Starting to sink in a bit...but very slowly!
I think that's the hardest part about early pregnancy. Until you start to show, or unless you've really got morning sickness, it's easy to forget you're pregnant or to not believe it. For me, once they stary kicking and then once I find out what gender it is, it becomes really real.
I hear ya! I keep reminding myself that we're doing it again. This will be my fourth. up until July 9th, when I decided I was ready to have another and ttc, I never thought i'd be saying the words "i'm pregnant", again. I think once I get my u/s at 8wks, on Aug 24th, it will sink in completely. Wow! My heart just sunk! lol!

It hasn't hit me yet either. I think once more people know and we are really acknowledging that we're having another baby in public it'll feel more real. Definitely after the first u/s on the 11th it will.
lol I guess I'm the odd ball here then. With my angel, I was feeling the same way you guys are. I didn't have ANY symptoms untill I hit 6 weeks and even then it was only morning sickness and slightly sore boobs, but even that wasn't that bad that it really hit me that I was pregnant. This time around, I feel it so strongly it helps me feel a whole lot more confident that everything will be ok. I've got all the little stuff like the sore nipples, swollen boobs, tons of CM, heartburn everytime I eat, in the restroom 25 times a day, my gums are sore, I'm unbelievably exhausted, extremely irritable all the time. Just 100 different reminders all day that I'm pregnant. And I talk to my little one constantly throughout the day. So I'm always aware that I'm pregnant and it's like my little one is doing all it can to make me realize that it's there and everythings going to be fine. Like it's a constant reassurance for me. I'm super excited for all the big stuff like the u/s's, the movements, shopping for stuff, etc. too though.
